  • We got a Sharp 660L fridge that has been great. We were limited on choices though because of the wall cavity

  • I bought a upside down LG and it is fantastic so look in the shops.

  • Ours is a standard Fisher & Paykel (freezer on top) type fridge and we are very happy with it.

  • No idea what a frenh door is, ( sides open ? ) , but people say it is best to have a separate compartment for freezer and fridge ( like the ones with freezer top and fridge bottom ) to keep food freshest .

  • We have a samsung french door refrifgerator one with the water and ice in the door just be aware if you get one you will need to get a water tap installed behind it. But it has been the best thing ever no arguments with the kids about drinking water anymore. they love that it so cold and filtered whenever they want it they now just help themselves. And on hot days the ice is easy to dispense.

  • We’re looking too. We liked the Fisher and pikle French door at the top, and drawer freezer. I’m not keen for chunky water holders which heaps have ad they take up space. I’m keen to hear what others have and like as well!

  • I love my pigeon pair. I do cook a lot and freeze a lot so a big freezer was a must. Fridge is 461L and freezer is 389L and brand fisher paykel. Best investment. I meal plan so having a fridge big enough after my shop was essential.

  • maybe check if choice magazine has done any reviews. I’d go for one with a high energy rating to keep your bills down

  • you get less space with a 4 door. a lot of wasted space on door shelves. would not recommend it.

  • We are a family of 5, we’ve had an Electrolux for about 3 years now and I absolutely love it. I love how there is four doors and the freezer is at the bottom with slide out shelves which can store so much.
